The beauty and luxury of wide plank White Oak floors
Carlisle wide plank White Oak floors provide a more visually appealing and luxurious feel than standard hardwood flooring. Commercial hardwood flooring uses 2¼-inch strips of wood that average 3 feet in length, creating hundreds of edges and seams in a standard room. Wide plank floors use boards that may be as wide as 8” to 20” and up to 12’’ long, ensuring fewer seams, making rooms feel larger and highlighting the beauty of the wood’s grain.
Customizing your White Oak floors
From cuts and colors to treatments and patterns, White Oak hardwood flooring can be customized to create a singular and unforgettable look.
Colors and patterns – White Oak can be finished and installed to create a wide variety of looks from light and breezy to dark and dramatic. Use the filters to see wide plank White Oak floors in a range of hues, saturation and patterns. The method used to cut boards from a White Oak tree impacts the appearance and strength of solid hardwood flooring. Plainsawn boards are the most common type of cut, producing a cathedral pattern in the grain. Quartersawn boards offer a straighter grain with some dramatic flecking, while Riftsawn floors ensure a narrower and very straight grain pattern. The cost of Rift and Quartersawn flooring is higher, as there is more waste in the cutting process.
Making new floors look old – Distressing your White Oak floors can add a unique and rustic look to any room. Distressed wood flooring recreates the aged and authentic appearance of wood floors more than a century old. From footworn boards to water stains to saw kerf marks, distressed wood floors use a variety of techniques to create a one-of-a-kind appearance. Reclaimed wood flooring – using lumber salvaged from older buildings – can also create this distinctive look.
